Publishers Description: In Khya’s world, every breath is a battle. On the isolated desert island of Shiara, dying young is inevitable. The clan comes before self, and protecting her home means Khya is a warrior above all else.

Review: This was a really fooking good novel up to the Kindle 41% mark.  See, Kyha is a baddass that don’t need no body muthafuka, and you can take that shjt you bring and leave it in a cavernous bathing pool why she run muthafukin miles through the desert on patrol. So go fukof.  UNTIL, she meets a boy. Fug. Then it’s a fukin’ mess of shjt.  How do you go from a badass warrior/magic user to needing hims bigs stwong awms wapped awound her poor wittle self? She cans fweels his manwly manwiness as hims draws near. Kyha is now constantly needing Tessen to prop and hold her up and basically hover like an African Tsetse fly waiting for a bite. Lets see…..Can kill with multiple weapons and trained since birth, runs miles avoiding Teegras and other nasties, lives for days without food or water….but needs a douche to hold her up every time the going gets tough…….yeeeeeah.

Ok, done with the bad, now with the good. World building and character development were superb. The storyline really held your attention with the constant movement and subtle intrigue. Really a 5 star work without a couple of ruined characters. I may give the next novel a shot if dipshjt and horny toes behave like normal people or one of them dies off and sets the storyline straight again.
